Surely you jest.

They were an 87 point club playing a 119 point club.

If we're talking about top 6 forwards:

The Penguins were stacked and I remember a (hockey news?) article around that time proclaiming that the Pens may have the best top 6 forwards ever.

Lemieux, Francis, Tocchet, Stevens --- that is 4 100 point scorers that year -- Jagr (94), Mullen (70 in 72GP). Cha-ching. They had everything in there. Extreme skill, grit, and good two-way guys too (Francis and Mullen in particular).

And Turgeon, by far the Isles most talented and highest scoring player, missed all but the last game of the series.. where he did nothing.

That was an epic, epic, upset.
